Somehow I doubt booze contributed.


Booze sure did the trick for me this time.

Evidence: Prior to my 171, I had stopped drinking for a month before the test. Prior to my 175, I drank frequently.


credited especially if you're the type that freaks the fuck out over everything

Nice idea. I'll make my contribution tomorrow, as I'm going to bed. I'll share some of my believes on what it takes to break 175 etc.

So are people actually going to answer my questions now that I've fixed the poll?
What books did you use?


Or...













I will make another thread.

I got a 180 and I'll happily answer your questions but first why don't you take a look in here

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=396

I know the thread isn't for 175+ specifically but you can easily read through and just skip the lower scores if you want.

Second the booze. And furious self-hatred whenever I pt'd below a 177.

Hey brah. How about you tell me how you did it?

Oh, this is handy. It didn't let me change my answer after you changed the poll, but the correct answer was "no" anyway.

What a riveting tale bro. Really I'm going to copy and paste that and back it up into my hard drive just so I can tell my grandchildren about what a great answer you gave.

On a more serious note, if your downsyndrome face didn't deviate so much from the norm I would actually insult you.

Alright, I don't wanna be an ass. I studied hard for 3.5 months, starting with the games. Moved into regular pt's about 3 months out. Would do about 2, maybe 3, pts a week then drill the other days. I'd drink on saturdays, but beyond that I was fully absorbed with the test for 3 months. I also work full-time, so I had to be.

My college workload made in well-practiced in quick reading and information retention, which helped for each part of the test. I wasn't too systematic about it, but I tried to note why I got questions incorrect every time I took a pt or drilled. Often it was just a misread, but it allowed me to really focus in on certain weaknesses a few weeks before the test. For me, those were principle questions, which my brain often computed as sufficient questions, and my tendency to breeze through logical reasoning questions that I (incorrectly) recognized as easy.

While it certainly depends on your disposition and under what conditions you perform your best, I think it helped that the last two pt's I took I got 172's (my avg was prob 174/5). It really shocked my system and made me angry and focused on test day. If I'd cruised in after two weeks of straight 177-180s, I think I could have easily made more mistakes through overconfidence. I ended up scoring 178, missing three on RC (two of which I changed to the incorrect answer at the last second, which I should've realized never serves me well).

Hey brah, take your downsyndrome face elsewhere before I begin to describe your facial aberrations.
